Every stick we sell is inscribed with "Made In Shillelagh, Ireland" and "O'Caidhla". This is our mark of authenticity. However we can change this if requested or we can add an additional message.
Common examples are -
We can inscribe whatever you like but we have some general guidelines that are useful for deciding.
All Walking Sticks come with a fitted brass ferule. This is a durable piece of brass that protects the bottom of the stick and is perfectly fine for ordinary light use.
However if a walking stick is going to be used all the time we recommend a non slip rubber tip. For those using their stick as a walking aid, for medical purposes a rubber non-slip tip is essential, particularly on smooth indoor surfaces.
These tips ensure you will have a firm grip on the ground which is important if you are putting a lot of your weight on the stick. The tips we supply are highly durable and have a steel insert for wear. They fit over the already installed brass ferule and can easily be removed if required.
These are available at $5 extra.
We only stock these for supply with sticks and they are not usually available
separately or as extras.
